We are a philanthropic community in Collingwood, and many of our residents and businesses are always trying to find a way to give back. If you want to get a tattoo for only $50, with a nautical theme, come to Collingwood on May 27th, when three prominent tattoo shops in the area will give you one in support of raising money for restoration of Collingwood’s lighthouse. The Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society is a charity dedicated to restoring and protecting the Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse, a Collingwood historical icon. The lighthouse was built in 1858, used to help warn those entering the Collingwood harbour of the area’s nautical dangers. It is attributed to the saving of hundreds of lives over its storied history in Collingwood. The tower is now in various stages of deterioration, and while it is no longer a visual aid for boaters, it still stands as part of a great...

Any Collingwood resident knows that the Elvis Festival is one of our most monumentous events. Anyone patiently waiting for that weekend in July will be excited to learn that you can get a little taste of the festival this weekend. But, it isn’t all fun and games. A new documentary on the Collingwood Elvis Festival, called “King for a Day” is going to be screened on April 1st and 2nd at the Simcoe Street Theatre. While the documentary will talk about all the hype surrounding our festival, this documentary will also get into some of the things that the general public doesn’t know. After having their media credentials revoked at the 2015 Collingwood Elvis Festival, a small Collingwood-area film and production company called Mountain Goat Film decided to expose some of the problems behind the festival. They did the film based on the premise that a large American corporation – Elvis Presley...
